Do you believe if that a baby becomes very ill from an unassisted birth. Or dies during an unassisted birth. That the Woman who birthed the baby unassisted. Should be given a prison sentence of life or even the death penalty?

  • She already has been... the guilt of hurting her child. That pain will last a lifetime. I don't think it should be up to the government to punish her further.

  • No, what if she could not get to the hospital or her labor was really fast and no phone so it would be so ify you just could not do that . The law would have to be very broad to cover that topic .

  • Umm no. Shes first of got to live with herself for the rest of her life Second off Didn't people use to birth Unassisted and what happened happened? It wasn't really anyones fault thats like saying if she was in the hospital and the baby Died or even became criticaly ill even though there was medical attention that the Dr. should be sent to prison for it. Right?

  • No. Accidents happen in hospitals too, but no one goes to prison for it.

  • Only if the doctors who delivered babies that later became sick and died also got prision sentences - that would make just as much sense.
